Skerries in the Nieski Islands

The Nieski Islands are located in the western part of the Great North Sea, to the east of Silland, north of UL13c and Lechia and west of Sapvuodma. They consist of a cluster of over ±2,000 islands and skerries, but only around dozen of them are inhabited.

The surface of the islands is generally rocky, with red and pink granite peppered with quartz crystals predominating. The soil is thin, stripped away by retreating glaciers at the end of the most recent ice age. The islands' topography varies significantly from one landmass to another. While some islands are relatively flat and feature fertile plains, others have more undulating terrain with elevated ridges and small hills. Due to its coastal location, the Nieski Islands boast an intricate network of fjords, inlets, and sheltered bays, contributing to the overall complexity of their topography. The coastlines are jagged and indented.

The highest elevation of the Nieski Islands is Mount Kostuch located on the island of Holsztuna, reaching an altitude of approximately 112 meters above sea level.
